made by the 2(st session of the legisia-

It is estimated that the amount this
year will almost reach 82,000,000, ex­

T he legislature has passed the bill
appropriating 1165,000 to build a port­
age railroad at the dalles of the Co­
lumbia river, between Celilo and The
Dalles. The Oregon Railway and
Navigation Company bad a powerful
lobby about Salem opposing the bill.

moeh rain as was recorded that
season the year before.
P robably no state in the Union
can show a better financial condition
than Oregon. The state bas no out­
standing bonded indebtedness, and it-
current debits are more tban offset by
accruing credits. In other words, Or­
egon is cut of debt, and with every­
thing collected and paid out that Is
due,there would n main a considerable
balance in tbe treasury.
A W ashingtom report says one sen­
ator at least was greatly Incensed at
Rockefeller sending him a dispatch to
the effect that tbe anti-trust bill must
be killed. That is tbe first case on
reaord of a senator getting angry
through notice from tbe big fellows.
If not millionaires themselves tbe
senators are often under pay of

T hk wheat situation is considerably
stronger than it was last week. Wil­
lamette millers are offering several
cents a bushel over tbe quotations re­
ported on Saturday. Ttday’s quota­

The fight in the ranks of the Repub­
lican party on the trust aud tariff is­
sues bas resulted in the triumph of tbe
Hanna faction.
“Let well enough
alone,” or do as little as possible, is to
be the programme in congress and not
a vigorous reform of abuses which was
promised before election.
It had been fondly hoped that Presi­
dent Roosevelt would add the weight
of his great office to ths side of the
people and urge reform. But to the
great regret of all who believe in
“equal rights to all and special priv­
ileges to none” tbe lukewarm recom­
mendations in the president's message
ar« a victory for the do nothings.
Strange to say, there is no specific rec­
ommendation in the whole message for
a law to prevent tbe extortions of the
trusts or the subsidies granted them
by the protective tariff. It Is not the
production of the strenuous Roosevelt,
but the glittering generalities of the
anxious politician. Intent on pleasing
all 'factions and especially the stron­
If Mr. Morgan or Mr. Rockefeller
had been president and had written the
message or decided upon its contents,
tt could not have been more conserva­
tive and the intention made more evi­
dent that no legislation of consequence
will be attempted by congress. The
financial kings of Wall street through
their senatorial and congressional al­
lies. appear to have by tbe force of
numbers deluded the president into the
belief that there is great danger of dis­
turbing tbe business of the country if
any reform is even attempted. The
presidential chariot has been hitched to
the Juggernaut of Wall street which
ruthlessly ignores tbe cries of distress
of those under their feet The presi­
dential recommendation for a tariff
commission bas for weeks been the
demand of the principal Wall street
organ, tt being well known that the
procrastinating workings of such a
body would hinder rather than accel­
erate reform. In fact President Roose­
velt emphasizes this when he says,
“The unhurried and unbiased report of
this commission would show what
changes should be made in the various
“Unhurry” is Just what Wall street
and the trusts desire. Furthermore,
tbe president has been led to believe
that reforming the tariff by removing
the protection that allows the trusts to
■ell their products cheaper to foreign­
ers than to our people “would be whol­
ly ineffective.” Thus the beef trust,
the coal trust tbe steel trust and the
hundred other trusts, as far as tbe tar­
iff is concerned, are to have free rein
to continue their exactions. But Pres­
ident Roosevelt recommends that tbe
duty on anthracite coal be repealed,
though he acknowledges that such an
amendment wopld only be of service in
such a crisis as was produced by the
coal strike. He does not recommend
that bituminous coal should also be
free, though that would be of greater
benefit In regulating tbe price of fue!
■t all times.
Regarding the power of congress to
regulate the trusts tbe president is evi­
dently in an uncertain mind and makes
no specific recommendations or sugges­
tions. He, however, acknowledges that
tt may be necessary to amend the con-
stitution to give more power to con-

The Standard OU company notified
its customers Dec. 10 that it had ad­
vanced the price of oil another cent
per gallon. This is an Increase of 3V4
cents since the beginning of the coal
On Dec. 11 Commander Booth Tuck­
er of the Salvation Army got a prom­
ise by telephone from J. Pierpont Mor­
gan that he would do all in his power
to aid the Salvation Army to supply
the poor with coal. The army is bold­
ing meetings on corners in the tene­
ment section of New York for the pur­
pose of giving instructions as to how
to use porous bricks which may be
saturated with kerosene or petroleum
and used for heating purposes Instead
of coal.
Morgan controls the coal and Rocke­
feller tbe oil trust Each profits by
the other’s mouopoly uud high prices.
The prices of both coal and oil will
average 40 to 00 per cent higher this
year than last year. There is almost
no limit to tbe price which these coal
and oil barons could obtain in winter
for these earth commodities. Their
monopoly is now complete enough, but
they fear the wrath of the people too
much to double prices at once. They
welcomed the coal strike because it
accustomed the people to higher prices.
The 3t4 cents per gallon advance in
the price of oil meaus 835,000,000 of
extra profits to the trust which paid
dividends last year of 848,000,000. The
82.50 or 83 per ton advance in the
price of coal means 8125,000,000 or
8150,000,000 a year to the coal trust.
It pays to be a divine bolder of tbe
coal and oil properties of this country,
even if a part of tbe profits of the busi­
ness is given as charity to the poor
to help them to keep warm. If a little
given in this way will keep tbe people
quiet while the trusts put on the
screws and add another cent per gal­
lon or another 50 cents per ton it is a
good investment. The “Christian men
to whom Qod In bis infiulte wisdom
has given control of the property in­
terests of this country” are both char­
itable and wise. We are at their
mercy, and they are merciful unto us.
There is no law to compel them to give
a dollar of their profits to charity. They
just give out of the goodness of their
hearts. We may be thankful that such
wise and good agents are put in charge
of the coal and oil mlues of this boun­
tiful earth.

Lyons Interviewed.
A reporter of the Eugene Guard was
granted an Interview with E. E. Ly­
ons, tbe murderer of Sheriff Withers,
in the Lane county jail. The prison­
er looked much worn and worried,
but was not in the least nervous and
talked in a clear voice without hesi­
tancy. Lyons said: "Yes, 1 admit
killing Billie; 1 shot him and am
caught. 1 would not have shot anoth­
er man to make my escape."
"Did you try to leave on the south­
bound passenger train ?"
"No. 1 waited until the train was
out and struck down she track. My
leg hurt me so I could not walk more
than three hundred yards at a time;
then I would have to rest. I got out
near Goshen and I slept a little while
by some ties. Pretty soon I got up
and went to Cresswell.”
"What made you shoot Withers ?”
“Oh, I told him I wouldn’t go with
him, and wanted to be stubborn, 1
guess. My wife commenced to plead
for me, and I saw a small chance to
get away. Billie didn’t have his gun
pulled, so I thought I would hold him
up and force him to let me go. He
held me by the coat, and I bad my
gun In my pocket. I just pointed it at
him from my side and fired. I wished
I hadn’t right away; but I ran as fast
as I could.”

Bacy Bemarks of Mr. Andrews at
a Public Function.
At a recent banquet, at Grand Rap­
ids, Mich., W. R. Andrews responded
to ttie toast, “The Filipinos,” in the
following style:
"You Filipinos don’t know what
you are mis-ing by not wanting to
become citizens of this grand coun­
try of ours. There isn’t anything
like It under tbe run. You ought to
send a delegation over to see us—the
land of the free—land of tine churches
and 100,000 licensed saloons; bibles,
forts and guns, housi sof prostitution;
millionaires and paupers; theologi­
ans and poverty; Christians and
chainganga; schools and scalawags;
trusts and tramps; homes and hun­
ger; virtue and vice; a land where you
cau get a good bible for fifteen cents
and a bad drink of whisky for five
cents; where we have a man in con­
gress with three wives and a lot in
the penitentiary for having two wives;
where some men make sausage out of
their wives, and some want to eat
them raw; where we make bologna
out of dogs, carmed beef out of horses
HDd sick cows and corpses out of the
people who eat it; where we put a
man in jail for not having the means
of support and on the rock pile for
asking f -r a job of work; where we
license bnwdy houses and tine men for
preaching Christ on the street cor­
ners; where we have a congress of 400
men who make laws, and a supreme
court of nine men who set them aside;
where good w hisky makes bad men
aud bad men make good whisky;
where newspapers are pild f r sup­
pressing the truth aJ.-l made rich for
teach lug a lie; where professors draw
their convict onr from tbe same place
they do th-ir salaries; where preach­
ers are paid 825,000 a year to dodge
the devil and tickle the ears of the
wealthy; where business consists of
getting hold of property in any way
that won’t land you in the peniten­
tiary; where trusts hold up and pov­
erty holds down; where men vote for
what they do not want for fear they
won’t get what they do want, by vot­
ing for it; where ‘tuggers’can vote
and wt men can’t; where a girl goes
wrong and is made an outcast aud her
male paitner flourishes as a gentle­
man; where woman wear false hair
and men ‘dock’ their horse«’ tails,
where the political wire-puller bas
displaced the patriotic statesman;
where men vote for «thing one day
and curse It 364 days; where we have
prayers on the floor of our na* ioual
capital and whiskey in the cellar;
where we spend 8500 to bury a
statesman wh > is rica ar d $10 to put
away a working man wi.o Is poor;
where to be virtuout is lonesome and
to be honest is to be a crank: where
we sit ou the safetv-valve of energy
and pull wide < peu the throttle i f
conscience; where g< Id Is substance—
the one tiling sought fur; where we
pay 815,000 lor a dog and nfieen cents
a d< zen to a poor woman for making
shirts; where we teach the untutored
Indian eternal life from the bible and
kill him off with bad whiskey; where
we put a man in jail for stealing a
loaf of bread and in congre-s for steal­
ing a railroad; where the check-book
talks, sin walks io broad daylight,
justice is asleep, crime runs amuck,
corruption permeates our whole so
clai and political fabric, and the devil
laughs from every street corner.
Come to us, Fillies! We’ve got the
greatest aggregation of good things
and bad things, hot things and co’d
things, all sizes, varieties and colors,
ever exhibi ted under one tent.”
A Weak Stomach
Causes a weak body and invites dis.
ease. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure cures and
strengthens tbe stomach, • nd wards
off and overcomes disease. J. B. Tay­
lor, a prominent merchant of Charles-
man, Tex., says: “I could not eat be­
cause of a weak stomach. I lost all
strength and ran down in wi igbt. All
that money could do was done, but all
hope cf recovery vanished. Hearing
of some wonderful cures effected by
use of Kodol, I concluded to try it-
Tbe first bottle benefited me, and
after taking the four bottles I am
fully restortd to my usual strength,
weight and health.
Simple Means for Overcoming This
Disease and also Scarlet Fever.
Capt. Nash has favored us with the
following paragraphs which may be
of special interest at this time:
John S. Tennys n lately publi-hed
the following In the Herald of Stock-
ton, Cal.: “I herewith append a re­
ceipt which has been used to my cer­
tain knowledge io hundreds of cas s.
It will prevent or cure small p'x
through the pittings and fi ling«. It
is as unfailing as fate, and conquer-
in everv instance, and is bar rule-«
when taken by a well person. It will
also cure scarlet fever. Here i* the
recipeas I have u«ed it, and cured my
children of scarlet fever, and a« I have
used it to cure small pox: Sulphate

of sugar; mix with two t tble«|KX)D8 of
water; takes tablespoonfulevey hour,
and either disease will disippear in

doses, according to age. If this wen-
used there would be n> need of pe-t

The United States land offices in
Oregon are now sending receipts to
all parties who have proved up on
timber claims, except in a few cises
where ttie land was taken through
fraud, or is being purchased under
contiact with large timber concern«.
The land office at Oregon City
caused tbe cancellation of timber en­
tries in Tillamook county amounting
to 30,000 acres, on the ground of
fraud and collusion between entrymen
and parties who had arranged to buy
the land on title being secured. C. E.
Hays was the principal contestant and
Robert Sturgeon principal c mtestee.
On Sturgeon’s case tl.e fate of 100 oth­
ers depended.

One thing is certain,—
Ayer’s Hair Vigor makes
the hair grow. This is
because it is a hair food.
It feeds the hair and the
hairgrows, that’s all there
is to it. It stops falling
of the hair, too, and al­
ways restores color to
gray hair.
